Decipher the dynamic neural circuit in the living brain
The ability to learn new skills and to adapt to an ever-changing environment is vital for the animal. To understand the neural circuit basis of such abilities, as well as the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms, we combine live imaging, molecular genetics, opto- and chemo-genetics, and mouse behavioral analysis to study synapse plasticity under both physiological and pathological conditions.
My laboratory is in UCSC's Department. of Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology. The University also offers a wide range of shared facilities, as well as opportunities for exciting interdisciplinary collaborations.
